As we approach the holiday season, we want to remind you that our office will be closed December 23, 2019—January 1, 2020. We will re-open January 2, 2020. We hope you are able to spend time with those closest to you. If we can do anything for you as a 4-H member, parent, or volunteer, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
